Submission

Recommended Posts

I know this ride is hated lol but might as well start a topic to vent your hatred or love for the ride.

Plus for the first time in a few year both arms were working together in sync for an hour until one broke down midday according to Towers Street.

It's good that they are using both arms again :)

I quite like Submission, I can't see why so many people hate it! If you don't like it don't ride it, simple as.

I quite like the sensation of it. Not so keen on the restraint which is like a brick being pushed into your stomach making it quite unpleasantly uncomfortable on slow inversions, and that it wobbles around like it is made of tinfoil held together with string.

The majority don't, hence why it's been stuck on one arm operation for ten years.

Awful ride. Can't believe they got rid of the Energiser for it - those things were a bit weird but I always quite enjoyed them. Submission is a classic example of flat ride that just doesn't work as a fun experience. If it didn't have such a small footprint I reckon it would be gone.

Are there many of these rides operating?

Only been on it once, but I quite liked it really. Fun experience which is quite different.

I also seemed to be fine with the restraints; no way painful at all and I was on the furthest inside. I can see why people would find the uncomfortable, but I was fine with them and they caused no issues.

I can think of a couple of flat rides (top spins, Slammer...) which I find much more uncomfortable and less entertaining (especially in the case of Slammer for the latter there).

I went on Submission on Saturday and, despite thinking that I would hate it I actually really enjoyed it. I am not a fan of slow inversions or being held upside down for longer than a second or two but I would have happily gone on it a few more times (had it not broken down).

I guess I am in the minority - it literally had no queue and I could have happily ridden it several times in a row.....but I ain't normal. Also I've heard that for males it can be, er, a tad painful

I must be one of the few people who actually likes Submission.
No, I won't go out of my way to ride it but if there is no queue and I am in the area then I will go on it. It's quite fun to be honest, even if it does hurt a bit!

They spent a lot of money, effort and time on it over this winter.

It operated with two arms in April I believe, it died within 30mins.

It hasn't operated with two arms since.

it's never busy enough to warrant opening with two arms... although as said above they did do a lot of maintenance over winter to open both arms anticipating it to be busy this season due to the close proximity of the smiler.

Well, they spent a lot of money as it'd "look good". Didn't increase budget to staff the ride.

When they eventually decided to use both sides, it broke. The end.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

No longer will we hear "SUBMISSION AWAITS, BE PREPARED FOR EMBARKATION".

That's sad. Very sad. Incredibly sad.

Or would be if anyone rode it regularly.

So they are taking it out before the season starts? In that case well I'm not sad, was painful as hell. And I'm glad enterprise isn't going it just fits there, fingers crossed for a too replacement.
